    I worked at Alternative Living Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful consumers very independent , great health care coverage, and schedules

    Cons

    Unprofessional, Rude and lazy managers. Everyone try's to throw each other under the bus to make themselves look good. Low pay for all the tasks and duties they try to assign,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a lot more professional, don't take your positions to your head and try to give credit to the hard working DSPs.

    I worked at Alternative Living Group

    Pros

    Alternative Living Group offers good relative pay and some nice perks, such as gas and petty cash. With my specific job there were also very flexible working hours.

    Cons

    Management was non-existent unless something was "wrong'. My supervisors/managers fulfilled little to none of their described duties and were very unorganized, although they were understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe Alternative Living Group would operate more efficiently if managers and supervisors were more involved with the respite workers, especially in the area of developing specific plans for the children.
